We had a great time in Costa Rica! The activities were amazing -- white water rafting, ziplining, boat tours, and more! We saw so many animals and ate authentic Costa Rican food. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Our guide for the week, J, was one of the best parts of the experience. He taught us so much about the culture, environment, and people. He also made sure we had everything we needed when we needed it. Can't wait to go back!

Our family had a wonderful 8-day trip to Costa Rica with Il VIaggio Travel in March/April 2022. The itinerary was perfect with one fun activity each day and plenty of down time to relax and enjoy pools or hotel properties. We saw so many monkeys, sloths, birds and other wildlife! Our time in Costa Rica was unforgettable and our naturalist guide, Juve from Il Viaggio, made it so special and taught us so much. I highly recommend traveling to Costa Rica with the Il Viaggio team!

Speaking as someone who has visited 48 countries and 46 states, I can say our recent 10 day trip to Costa Rica was undoubtedly one of the best of my lifetime! II Viaggio did a fantastic job of planning the trip. We had excellent customer service during both the planning process and throughout the trip itself. For instance, when I wasn't happy with the first experience of ziplining, II Viaggio sent us to a different ziplining company for an additional and better experience (at no additional cost to us). Our tour guide, Diego was awesome! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was helpful, friendly, professional, and catered to what we wanted to do (a few extra stops for souvenirs as an example). My husband and I enjoyed the surfing (a first for both of us), seeing all the animals in several places, the coffee/chocolate tour, the boat tours, and staying in the rainforest in Tortuguero. I don't know what it is, but I have never felt so relaxed; it was a true vacation. I highly recommend booking your trip to Costa Rica with II Viaggio!
